That's because there is some ambiguity in the data, at this time. 
Basically, one than one entity has been denoted using the same URI. 
Possible solution:

<http://manning.com/dwood#this> denotes 'David Wood'.
<http://manning.com/dwood> denotes an HTML document.
<http://manning.com/dwood/LinkedData.ttl> denotes a Turtle based RDF 

This Link shows the problem: 

The issue of 303 is a secondary mechanical detail. The important thing 
is to denote all the entities -- in an entity relationship graph (RDF or 
otherwise) -- unambiguously. The mechanics of 303 only comes into play 
when an entity that's not of type 'Web or Internet Document' ends up 
being denoted using a hashless HTTP URI.
